Ashwagandha Root Power

Ashwagandha is a herb used for over 3,000 years in the natural practice of medicine of Ayurveda.  The term Ayuverda  is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (your life) and veda (science or knowledge).  I turned to the use of Ashwagandha as a more holistic tool to manage stress, anxiety and depression as opposed to prescriptions .   

According to the National Library of Medicine,  there is scientific basis for the use of Ashwagandha in the treatment of CNS (Central Nervous System) disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s  and even in the management of drug addition.
